Updated Playoff Standings and Clinch Scenarios

By Toby Christie, Editor — Follow on Twitter @Toby_Christie

Man, what a race Bristol Motor Speedway put on. The race had it all. Big crashes, tight battles all night long, and in the end a driver — Kurt Busch — got their first win of the season.

Not only that, but three more drivers — Ryan Blaney, Brad Keselowski and Kyle Larson — did enough to secure berths in the Playoff Grid. With two races remaining 12 of the 16 slots have been filled, which leaves four positions for 18 drivers to battle for.

Who is locked in? Who is currently hanging on? And who is on the outside looking in? Continue reading “Updated Playoff Standings and Clinch Scenarios”

Kyle Busch’s Bristol Performance Possibly Most Impressive/Frustrating of Career

By Toby Christie, Editor – Follow on Twitter @Toby_Christie

Throughout his career, Kyle Busch has won seven times at Bristol Motor Speedway, and along the way he has led a staggering 2,233 laps there. The 32-year-old driver did not add to either of those totals in Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops/NRA Night Race at Bristol, but his showing was possibly more impressive and frustrating than any of his previous 26 starts at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile.

Bristol Marks Stenhouse’s Last Real Shot at Playoffs

By Toby Christie, Editor – Follow on Twitter @Toby_Christie

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. comes into Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops night race at Bristol Motor Speedway in an unenviable position – the first man outside the cutline for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

The 30-year-old driver currently sits 62 points behind Hendrick Motorports driver Alex Bowman. Stenhouse could erase that point deficit over the next three races, but it is highly unlikely that it will happen. But if Stenhouse were to win one of the three remaining regular season races the Olive Branch, Mississippi native would leapfrog his way automatically into the post season. The three races left include Bristol, Darlington and Indianapolis. Continue reading “Bristol Marks Stenhouse’s Last Real Shot at Playoffs”

Why is Justin Allgaier Stuck in the Xfinity Series?

By Toby Christie, Editor — Follow on Twitter @Toby_Christie

While most of the buzz in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season has been about how Joe Gibbs Racing’s young phenom Christopher Bell looks like he’s ready to move to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Justin Allgaier has continued to chalk up results like he has throughout his eight full-time seasons in the NXS ranks.

And this has me wondering: Why aren’t more people talking about Allgaier? Continue reading “Why is Justin Allgaier Stuck in the Xfinity Series?”
